Obama Talks Taxes

President Barack Obama,
two thousand screaming supporters,
at Rollins college on Thursday

Two different versions of America:
Mitt Romney’s tax cuts for the rich;
Obama’s defense of the middle class.

Trickle-down economics—
the path Romney is proposing—
Trickle-down tax-cut fairy-dust.

Romney asks middle class families
to pay higher taxes.
Not to reduce our deficit,

Not to help care for seniors,
Not to rebuild America,
Not to fight a war.

Romney is asking you to pay more
so that people like him can pay less. 

If you are middle class or poor, why would you vote for Romney?  I think people are starting to catch on.  Obama has substantial leads in the swing states.  Maybe Obama will take all 50 states.  Well, maybe not Utah.  The Mormons will probably vote for one of their own regardless of how bad his policies are.
